Can you clarify some questions I have concerning clearing the past?

[EUT20 #7] Concerning clearing my past, I have some questions:

  1. After confessing to family and friends, should I be feeling released now, or will I not until I receive a response from them indicating that they forgive me or are not bothered by what I did?
  2. Should I insist on making restitution for things I broke or stole, or just offer it and leave it up to them?
  3. In some cases, I do not thing I can track down the person(s) I wronged, unless I hire a private investigator, or someone like that. What should I do in those situations?
In Question and Response (Q&R) sessions, a group of invited panelists respond to questions submitted by students and young adults during the week. The panelists are generally older and more experienced brothers in the Lord who have the burden to respond to our questions by sharing both the truth from the Bible and their experiences in life.

It is important to point out that these brothers do not presume to have the answers to our questions. Rather, they are willing to provide a response in fellowship, and to encourage us to personally go to the Lord and consider all these things before Him.

“That which we have seen and heard we report also to you that you also may have fellowship with us, and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.”

-1 John 1:3
